What is a Dedicated IP?
A dedicated IP (Internet Protocol) is a unique Internet address dedicated exclusively to a single hosting account. Normally, several hosting accounts reside on a single server and share that server's IP address. Dedicated IP addresses are usually used for large SSL-encrypted secure websites and particularly large and/or traffic-heavy sites. Most shared hosting users have no particular need for a dedicated IP address.
However, a dedicated IP address for your hosting account enables you to:
- View your website via its IP address
- Access your accounts by FTP or the Web when the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as during domain name propagation periods
- Ensure faster response during periods of high traffic load
- Set up SSL protection on your website
